Born in Guam and raised in the shadow of NASA Space Center in the suburbs of Houston, I had an encouraging public school education. I was class clown and teacher's pet, but felt alienated from my classmates. I started college early at 15 years old, and found mentors who challenged and inspired me to walk my own path, often against tradition. I have lived and traveled all over the country. I enjoy painting, creating mixed-media art, and playing punk and heavy metal on my cello. I love riding motorcycles and trying new dive restaurants with my partner. I am direct, assertive, and honest. My passion is listening between the lines when someone is showing me their heart, and reflecting boldly what I see yearning to be expressed.
